I found solution and OBS build is fixed.

@hawkeye116477 I tried the patches on your branch and 2022.08 built fine with new rust version

@toxygen Problem with rust is newer (last try on OBS was before new rust came). Anyway, fix for Rust is easy, I'll send it soon.

However if that really works on Arch, then appears that something could be wrong at OBS side.

the error I get with the latest rust package (rust-1:1.63.0-1)

@hawkeye116477 it's the new rust version

rustc -V rustc 1.63.0 (Arch Linux rust 1:1.63.0-1)

downgrading to 1:1.62.1-1 builds fine for both 2022.06 and 2022.08

hawkeye116477 commented on 2022-08-11 09:46 (UTC)

In case of version from OBS, not sure when it will come. There is error when building 2022.06 and never version, which appears on OBS, but can't reproduce that locally, but I'm using Manjaro, so maybe some newer package causing that, but it's weird that works good before 2022.06.

toxygen commented on 2022-07-27 17:18 (UTC)

any word on when 2022.06 will be added? (or are we closer to 2022.07 or 2022.08?)


toxygen commented on 2022-03-08 02:11 (UTC)

if anyone is having the tab crashing problem, this patch fixed it for me (on the currently available version)... it's just one file change after getting the source:

toxygen commented on 2021-12-04 18:00 (UTC)

on new PKGBUILD, all the

"cd Waterfox"

should be

"cd Waterfox-Classic"

Does anyone else have problems with building after updates of rust, llvm, libffi and other packages?

rust had been updated (1:1.55.0-1 -> 1:1.56.1-3)

waterfox build of 2021.10 returns errors that appear to have to do with rust:

... 33:16.41 Compiling rust_url_capi v0.0.1 (/var/tmp/pamac-build-user/waterfox-classic-kpe/src/Waterfox/netwerk/base/rust-url-capi)

33:18.67 error[E0557]: feature has been removed

33:18.67 --> /var/tmp/pamac-build-user/waterfox-classic-kpe/src/Waterfox/third_party/rust/packed_simd/src/

33:18.67 |

33:18.67 202 | #![cfg_attr(use_const_generics, feature(const_generics))]

33:18.67 | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ feature has been removed

33:18.67 |

33:18.67 = note: removed in favor of #![feature(adt_const_params] and #![feature(generic_const_exprs)]

33:18.67 ...

I'm trying to do a fresh build of 2021.10 because after updates waterfox-classic doesn't start anymore .. doesn't find a library: cannot open shared object file

libffi and associated packages had been updated as well: libffi (3.3-4 -> 3.4.2-4)

I tried to downgrade llvm, llvm-libs and so on, but I don't want to downgrade libffi as the new thunderbird version depends on that.

Any ideas?
